    [Blog] The Marketer’s Biggest Mistake
    We don’t do a lot of A/B split testing in the blogging and new media world, do we? What we tend to do wrong when we market is we think we’re selling to ourselves. We think our buyer thinks like us. We believe that our buyer is us. Now, sometimes, that’s true to an extent. When Josh makes superhero tee shirts , he’s making shirts that he (and I) think are cool and that we like. But even then, does that mean we’ll know what a buyer who isn’t us will like? You Can Always Ask. One way to know your buyer is to ask. So even that can’t always work.
